4 Boys Assault 8-year-old girl

Cnn reported today that an 8-year-old girl was lured into a storage shed by for boys, ages 9, 10, 13, 14, where she was held down and sexually assaulted.

Here is the full story:

At age 9, I was outside from dusk till dawn playing soccer, manhunt, ghost in the graveyard (fun game btw), with the neighborhood kids. I had no concept of these things.

Ya know, it really makes me wonder: When young kids are sexually assaulting other children, what are we as a society doing wrong? Something's not right. These children either are clueless and have no true concept of what they are doing or they have been desensitized and been told by our culture that this is acceptable. I'm going to offer forward the latter for consideration.

Peace and Love,
